Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski scores TD in Week 11 win
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(11/16/14) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski caught four of his five targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in his team's 42-20 win over the Colts in Week 11.
Gronkowski's touchdown was a thing of wonder, as he hauled in a short pass to the left side of the formation for a first down before shaking off three defenders and breaking free towards the end zone. He hurdled one more defender at the goal line and crashed into another in the end zone to deliver his fifth touchdown in his last three games.
Gronkowski didn't see the 9-11 targets he's managed over the last five weeks in Sunday's win as the Patriots leaned heavily on the running game, but he still contributed in a big way on the impressive scoring play. Now with 53 receptions, 734 yards and nine touchdowns, Gronkowski will match up with the Lions in Week 12.
Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski has another big game Week 9
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(11/2/14) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski turned in a strong game Week 9 against the Broncos.
Gronkowski led the way for New England, hauling in nine passes for 105 yards. While Gronkowski was dominant throughout the outing, he didn't find the end zone until the final quarter. After making a tremendous one-handed catch to get the team to the 1 yard line, Gronkowski finished off the drive with a score on the next play. Gronk later caught a nine pass, putting him over 100 yards on the day. It was the 15th 100 yard game of his career.
Gronkowski is on a bye Week 10.
T.J. Ward feels bad Gronkowski was hurt on low hit, but 'that's about it'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(10/30/14) Broncos safety T.J. Ward might hear a chorus of boos reign down in his direction during Sunday's game at New England, and that's because Ward was the player responsible for sending Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski to injured reserve last season.
Ward, who was playing for the Browns last season, ended Gronkowski's season in Week 14 last season with a helmet-to-knee hit that tore Gronkowski’s right ACL and MCL. Ward said he has no regrets about the play and wasn’t purposely trying to take out Gronkowski’s knee, per The Boston Globe.
"I feel bad he got hurt, you know, but that’s about it," Ward said Wednesday. "I’m just playing fast out there, and coincidentally, it was a bang-bang play. I think if he wouldn’t have gotten hurt, then it wouldn’t be an issue."
Ward, who is seven inches shorter and 65 pounds lighter than Gronkowski, said the only way to tackle Gronkowski is by going low.
"Gronk’s a big dude. He gets hit, and he keeps going. Guys bounce off him, and he’s throwing guys left and right," Ward said. "I was taught that if you can take a guy’s wheels away from him, he’s no longer mobile, and that’s what you’ve got to do with big guys. I’m not going to go in there and bang heads with somebody that’s 60 pounds more than me. I’m going to hurt myself."
Rob Gronkowski ready to blow up the league again
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(10/26/14) After being limited early on by his recovery from a torn ACL, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski got back to a more typical workload Week 5 against Cincinnati, and his numbers improved as a result. But may the record show that Week 8 against Chicago was when he officially "made it back."
This is what he can do, folks. If you've wondered why he's achieved near-mythical status in Fantasy despite all the injuries over the years, it's because he's proven capable of performances like this one any given week. He has the size to run over anyone who gets in his way, as he did on his third touchdown in Week 8, and yet the athleticism to make a leaping grab along the sidelines, as he did on his first two. And of course, he has a quarterback in Tom Brady who can make the most of his abilities.
Now, for the record, Gronkowski certainly wasn't a scrub prior to Sunday. Week 8 was his third game in four with at least 90 receiving yards. But his scoring rate through seven games was actually a bit lower than it had been in recent years. He may have a few more multi-score games in his future to make up for it.
|For the second year in a row Rob Gronkowski will enter the season with questions about his health. Last year, Gronkowski was coming off back surgery and problems with his forearm, and he missed the first six games of the 2013 season. He looked like the Gronkowski of old upon his return until a torn ACL in Week 14 ended his year, and now he's making yet another injury comeback. All signs point toward Gronkowski being ready for Week 1, but we won't know his status until training camp. Still, based on his talent level, Gronkowski is worth drafting as your No. 1 tight end. He had 39 catches for 592 yards and four touchdowns in seven games last year. If you project that over 16 games, Gronkowski would have finished with 89 catches for 1,353 yards and nine touchdowns. Those stats would have placed Gronkowski No. 2 at tight in Fantasy points behind Jimmy Graham in a standard league. Of course, Gronkowski has now played just 18 games over the past two seasons, so he's become an injury risk. But he's still worth the gamble with a pick in Round 4 at the latest because when he plays, he dominates.
